MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the government of Montenegro issued a statement reiterating its allegation that Russia was stoking anti-government protests in the country.
"A new response is absolutely unnecessary. It is absolutely, as before, unsubstantiated accusations," Peskov told journalists when asked to comment on the new Montenegrin allegations.
A string of anti-government protests organized by the Democratic Front opposition coalition have shaken the small Balkan country in recent weeks. The latest gathering on Saturday saw police use tear gas against demonstrators who are calling for the prime minister’s resignation and demanding that Montenegro stay out of the US-led NATO military bloc.
